Trying to find the perfect gift for your dad can sometimes seem like an impossible feat. And with Father's Day coming up on Jun. 17, 2018, the clock is ticking — but, for some reason, picking a gift isn't getting any easier. It's my philosophy that going against the grain a bit and looking for a gift that's not your typical dad tie or coffee mug is the way to go — because, trust me, he doesn't need any more dad ties or coffee mugs. That's why I've put together a list of last-minute Father's Day gifts that are both random and genius, because surprising your dad is totally priceless. Especially if you're that kid who is single-highhandedly responsible for all the ties in your dad's closet (that he doesn't wear) and all the cheesy mugs in your dads kitchen (that he never uses).
Be a low-key hero and get your dad something he had no idea he needed. Get him something that maybe he doesn't even understand how to use. Get him something that seems so random, but then he quickly realizes is so genius. Get your dad something that doesn't scream Father's Day, despite how counter-intuitive that might sound. Why do moms get diamonds and dads get grill tools? Who made those rules? Isn't your dad worth more than a grill tool? Show him you care by showing him something new, or, er, well, totally random.
